Domino’s Pizza Opens First New Store in Macedonia
Skopje store opens with fanfare and great pizza
Domino’s Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, has opened its first store in Macedonia, with the promise of hot, delicious pizza for the residents of the capital city of Skopje. The grand opening event included many prominent individuals in the local community, including U.S. Ambassador Paul Wolhers, who got the first pizza straight from the oven.
Master Franchisee Paul Tsouloufris worked together with three partners ? Nebojsa Stameski, Boban Angelovski and Sasha Georgievski ? to get the business up and running. A second store in the brand new Skopje City Mall is also nearing completion. The company’s management has extensive experience that makes it well-positioned to develop Domino’s into a leading brand in Macedonia.
“I am proud of the team that got this store up and running and we’re pleased to be the first store to open with the new Domino’s logo as well,” said Tsouloufris. “We are looking forward to providing this community with hot, fresh pizza to their doorstep as we work to become the leading pizza delivery restaurant in Macedonia.”
Domino’s Pizza now operates in over 70 markets worldwide, with nearly half of its global retail sales coming from international stores, generating roughly a third of its operating income.
